Use one colour or multiple colours of embroidery floss to make friendship bracelets. You can purchase embroidery floss where sewing supplies are sold. Embroidery floss is sturdy, so the bracelets last for a while, if properly cared for. Add beads for a different look or to personalise the bracelet. For example, you can use lettered beads to spell out the receiver's name.

    Braided Bracelet

  1. 1

    Cut three four-foot pieces of embroidery floss.

  2. 2

    Knot the three strands together at one end.

  3. 3

    Tape the knot to a sturdy surface, like a table or desk.

  4. 4

    Braid the string. Knot the end.

  5. 5

    Remove the tape. Hold the two knots together and twist the bracelet.

  6. 6

    Tie the two ends of the bracelet around the wrist.

    Beaded Bracelet

  1. 1

    Cut two one-foot pieces of embroidery floss.

  2. 2

    Lay the pieces next to each other at one end, and tie them together with a knot.

  3. 3

    Tie the strands together with another knot about a third of the way down the two strings.

  4. 4

    Thread the two pieces of thread at the other end through beads. Press the ends together and wet them to make it easier to slide the beads on. Push the beads to the second knot.

  5. 5

    Tie the strands together with a knot after the last bead. Wrap the bracelet over the wrist. Tie another knot one inch before the two ends overlap. Tie the two ends together around the wrist and cut off excess string.

Tips and warnings

  • If you can't braid, simply twist two pieces of string together and fold them in half before wrapping the bracelet around your wrist.
